I have posted a short article on this lens on my web page. I get asked about it often enough so that it was worth the trouble. I don't have 100% crops, because there's no need--the lens does what it does. If you need to adjust the plane of focus, you'll put up with the little problems this lens displays, but really the problems are tiny and the benefits huge. The images could be produced no other way.

I don't think it covers anything not already covered in this thread already, but it provides a short synopsis with examples for those who are new to camera movements. Here's one of the examples, made with a 5D and this lens.

Is it bad that I haven't wanted to take my 17-40L out of the bag ever since I bought this lens? I'm normally aching for more FOV on the 1.3X 1DII, but I've forced myself to only use the 24mm TS for anything landscape related for the last month, and I'm starting to become uncomfortably comfortable with such a 'tight' FOV.

A note for potential buyers: I picked up the Angle Finder C to try and help focus when tilting, and it is a big improvement.

Shea, I love your shot, one of the most artistically justified and creative reverse tilt shots I have ever seen.

Could someone with 5Dmk2 and this lens please make a video which would show how perspective is changed when lens is shifting/tilting - I'm seriously thinking of getting this lens and can't seem to find any video that shows it.

Thank you!

You're better off to rent one and try it for yourself. The video won't help because it won't relate what you see in it to the settings of the lens, but it would be kind of freaky to look at.

Or, go to a book store and look through a book about view cameras.

The concept of renting a lens in Croatia is unknown. You are lucky if they allow you to test the lens in a store for that matter. I've read some books about T&S but I'd like to see it in action. I saw some YouTube videos showing Nikon T&S in action so I guess it will have to do... :) Thx.

In that case, I would suggest a classic: Ansel Adams, The Camera. The technology is dated, but the material is still 100% applicable to digital photography, especially if you are to the point of considering a tilt/shift lens. You won't regret it. I'm hoping you can find a book like that in Croatia, or at least have it delivered in.

An alternate plan is to just buy one, and then figure it out. If it doesn't work out, I bet you'd get a very high percentage of your purchase price in selling it back to someone else, perhaps through this forum. The difference might be no more than two or three rental sessions.

Ha ha, the 17-40 will always have a spot in my bag, unless I eventually upgrade to the 16-35II.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words about the previous shot. I haven't been out shooting in something like a month due to weather and work load, but hopefully I'll be able to post a few more here soon.

Here is one from a couple of days ago.....

To give a strong sense of space around this historic unfinished building, I shifted the TS-E 24mm nearly all of the way up, thus placing the structure low in the frame.
